A fun shojo series strongly in the vein of Card Captor Sakura with well drawn art and amusing moments. Volume 4 was just pure hilarity mixed with moments of self angst that is becoming somewhat common in Shugo Chara (and that's understandable as our personal characteristics aren't something most of us so readily develop, especially at that early an age). But the highlight of this volume for me has to be the introduction of the chara Utau, especially her special move 'White Flag' that was introdu ...more
I got distracted for a while because I found it boring at first. I already knew what was going to happen, I watched the anime, So it took me some weeks to finally pick it up again and finish it. The manga is WAAAAAAAAY better than the Anime, they crushed, mashed, mixed, and pulverized things into a fine dust, mixed it with Too many episodes and Seasons (Ha) and just sorta distorted it. What I found amusing is that Ikuto really does not show any feelings toward Amu, and everyone thinks they like ...more

This is book 4 of a series built on fantasy fiction. I liked reading this because it is a new idea to me and it has all kinds of action and romance I enjoy reading as well as feeling similar to some of the characters. I think a lot of people who enjoy fantasy, action, and romance would enjoy this very much because being interested in such things myself I find it to be very exhilarating to read.

Kukai's gone? Are you kidding me? He was the best thing in this series.

Moving on, I seriously did not like this one. The new characters are just unlikable. The whole 'character swap' scenario left me with a 'wtf' face the entire time. Furthermore, Utau and Ikuto now officially disturb me.
[Ch. 15-18]

Aw, too bad about those two kids who aren't Guardians anymore especially the guy since he's a really fun character... but you do get to see him in one of the chapters. :)
Also, the ending.. weird.. O_O
AHH! I want more! I won't see the next volume until next year, 2009! Ahh! I can't wait that long to see what happens next! I'm going to find a bunch of images on the internet to satisfy my craving!
The bickering characters in this book are hilarious, its seems like an atomic bomb could go off and they'd still be going at each other. This is also where we meet the x-chara, wee.

So when does "like" turn into "love"? Where's the boundary?

I'm so turning into middle grader lately. ~
It's nice to unwind a bit ;)
I love this story!
the idea of 'the person you want to be' is so good, unique, and relateable that i want to read more.
plus, i want to see ikuto and amu get together!
I really love this manga. The drawings are cute, the concept in unique, however, I have a hard time following it.
I love the premise of this series, but the execution is very underwhelming.

Peach-Pit (ピーチ・ピット Pīchi Pitto) is a female manga artist duo in Japan, made up of Banri Sendo (千道 万里 Sendō Banri) and Shibuko Ebara (えばら 渋子 Ebara Shibuko). Their group name derives from the diner hangout Peach-Pit from the TV show Beverly Hills, 90210. Although both have similar styles, with some artwork it is possible to identify which artist drew it. Both are known for their bishōjo styled works ...more

“Like" as a friend. "Like" as respect.
There are so many different kinds of "likes."
So when does "like" turn into "love"? Where's the boundary?”
“I want to challenge myself and do new things.

I don't know what it's like to be my true self. But it's more interesting that way.
Even if you don't know yourself?

If you don't know it means you can become anything you want to be, right?”
